Terex Utilities to unveil hybrid aerial device

Terex Utilities plans to introduce its HRX-55 Overcenter Material Handling Aerial Device at the Hybrid Truck Users Forum in November 2007. The HRX-55 fits on a medium-duty truck base for use in municipal and utility applications.

Lee Jacobson, Terex Utilities vice president of sales, says customers will benefit in terms of noise reduction and fuel economy.

“Terex Utilities has been a great supporter of the HTUF and its objective of commercialization of heavy-duty hybrid technologies,” Jacobson says. “We’re pleased our ongoing work with Peterbilt and other manufacturers has led to the development of the HRX-55 Hybrid Aerial Device and we’re encouraged to continue development of further hybrid models.”
